"2023 ❤️," he wrote alongside an image of Palmer that showed her baby bump prominent under a brown sweater dress.

During her SNL hosting gig, Palmer let her baby bump play a role during two sketches — once in a Kenan and Kel reboot sketch with Kenan Thompson, and another as a mother who goes to an ultrasound appointment to check in on her rambunctious twins.

During her opening monologue, Palmer teased that there were "some rumors going around, people have been in my comments saying, 'Keke's having a baby, Keke's pregnant,' " before she "set the record straight" and revealed she is indeed expecting, ripping open a long jacket to reveal her bump on the Studio 8H stage.

"I gotta say, though, it is bad when people on the internet spread rumors about you y'all, but it's even worse when they're correct. I mean, like, I was trying so hard to keep it on the down low, cause I got a lot of stuff going on, you know?" she continued. "... But honestly this has been the biggest blessing, and I am so excited. Guys, I'm going to be a mom."

"Even though some people feel a little weird about me having a baby cause I was a child actor, I just wanna say, look, I'm 29, I'm grown, I have sex, I own a home, I stormed the Capitol on January 6, you know? Things adults do," she joked.
